Visitation by Jenny Erpenbeck

Visitation - Jenny Erpenbeck, Susan Bernofsky

I wanted to like this book, but it just didn't do it for me.  I felt like I was just swimming through a tangle of words, trying to figure out what was going on.  This felt like writing for writing's sake, like showing off you know about words, rather than to properly tell an interesting story.
